CHAPTER II International Society Of Ancient Asia, 660 B. c.? 930 A.
D. The Early Intercourse of Japan with the Korean Kingdoms and
China.?In primitive times there was no international society or
association of the different races as such. In the Orient as well
as in the Occident the society of nations is the product of

Jerusalem. Without entering into the myths and legends of Japan, it
may be said that her national history commencedwhen the Emperor
Jinmu, the first Mikado, after the subjugation of the tribes on the
mainland, established a capital at Kashiwabara in Yamato, 660 B.
